Flat, green Schleswig-Holstein is an ideal destination for cyclists. The country between the North Sea and the Baltic Sea has 13 developed long-distance cycle routes, which often run along the coastlines and offer great views of the water. Smaller and larger harbour towns invite you to take a break and explore. But the inland region between the coasts also entices everyone who visits with interesting routes through unspoilt natural paradises and along historic trails. The region’s cultural history – from the Vikings and Frisians to the first Christians and the merchants of the Hanseatic League – truly comes alive here.
